Lots of spray!

Beautiful sight, lots of spray, not cheap to visit via the park but worth it. There's a trail round the park that takes in different views and aspects of the falls.

We made a day trip to Zimbabwe to see Victoria falls from Zambia. We stayed in Zambezi Sun on Zambia side. The hotel was able to call a cab that will take to the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe. Once at the check post we paid the visa fees and walked into Zimbabwe side. The falls is about quarter of... More

The falls were every bit as amazing and impressive as I'd hoped. I am glad I went - If you are impressed by natural wonders then I highly recommend going to see Vic Falls but know that it is an big effort to get there (with only 2 flights a day from South African and long customs lines) so if...

You must see the falls from the Zimbabwean side even though it costs $30 to get in. The water level is considered low in August so we were able see the falls and take photos without getting wet and they were still very impressive.

The Vic Falls are aptly a natural wonder of the world! They were so incredible from the Zimbabwe side at this time of the year. We were actually able to see and experience the falls as the mist was not as strong at this time.

The sheer beauty and magnificence of the falls will amaze any visitor and it's an absolute must for anyone in the area. The rain forest area around the falls is wonderful and so peaceful to walk through and the monkeys and birdlife that are around you without any fences is truly and African experience. To see a small slice of... More

The entrance fee is steep but well worth the view of the falls. The walkway is solid and well looked after however there is very little in terms of barriers from the edge, so if traveling with children be aware. Take the walk slowly, enjoy the atmosphere and let the spray fall on down. Victoria falls are guaranteed to take... More

Seeing the Victoria Falls was an amazing experience. It made me understand what the big deal is all about. It's an unexplainable experience that can only be quantified by experience. It makes one appreciate the greatness of Mother Nature. This is a place that I can easily see myself returning to again & again in the future.

We walked on the bridge between Zimbabwe and Zambia. We watch very daring people bungee jump off of the bridge. It was a crazy and thrilling to experience, even if only a spectator.
